Just two months after Google declared Dart production ready with its 1.0 release, Dart 1.1 was released on Thursday and it now claims to be up to 25% faster than its JavaScript performance.

Dart, Google's initiative for a new web programming language that can also compile to JavaScript, says that it's now running 25% better than the first (v1.0) release. In some cases the performance has doubled compared to the November state of the open-source project.

Besides faster performance the Dart 1.1 release also has improvements for server-side Dart. Dart 1.1 also has UDP support.

More details on all of the changes and new features for the Dart 1.1 implementation can be found via the release announcement blog post at DartLang.org.
